There is always something to do in Ghana whatever your budget with so many places to stay and things to do you will never be short of interesting things to experience that will amaze you. To note most of the Ghana interesting places will require transport and if you are travelling with children not all of them will be suitable depending on their age. What we have tried to do is put an age rating for children on each of the places and attractions but you all know your family and people you are exploring with better.
Ghana offers a wealth of things to do from amazing waterfalls, wildlife parks, lakes, natural beauty to some very unique festivals.
Our recommendation for the 10 interesting things to find and do in Ghana
Cape Coast and Elimina Castle, Cape Coast-General Slave Castle tours
The Castles on the coast – the slave castles located in Elimina and Cape Coast really do offer a first-hand experience of what the slave trade was like from all sides involved. Its a tour you have to take to really get an understanding of this deep history
Boti Falls and Umbrella Rock, Koforidua
Located in Koforidua this is a natural waterfall that a nice oasis amongst the lush forest. The Umbrella Rock is about thirty minutes walk in the forest from Boti falls. We advise long boots as there are the occasional snakes, but take the path to umbrella rock going past some cultural villages
Sandbox Beach Club
“Ha Chale”…Sandbox Beach club is a great one for all beach-lovers. Located at South Labadi Estates, it has a state-of-the-art beach resort that gives visitors so much fun, a romantic getaway and breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The serene lake and waters of Lake Bosomtwe are great for fishing or just lounging in. This is apparently the only natural lake in Ghana and it is impressive to just get to. The lake occupies an area of 19 square miles and the water is sourced from a number of small streams that tumble down the steep sides of the crater. It’s a great place to go and relax and chill.
Akosumbo Dam, Lake Volta, and the Admoi Bridge
Lake Volta is a man-made lake and could be a wonder of man’s engineering as out of this man-made lake lays Akosombo Dam which provides hydroelectric power for Ghana. So Ghana was eco friendly before people even thought of the term. You can Marvel at the size of the dam and the abundance of fresh Tilapia fish that are swimming which clearly outnumber the fishermen trying frantically to catch them. The other must-see place once you are in Lake Volta is the Adomi Suspension bridge which crosses Lake Volta
Chalewote Street Festival – Every August
The Chale Wote Street Art Festival is an alternative platform that brings art, music, dance and performance to Accra’s James Town district in August. The 2021 event dates will be updated as soon as we have them.
The village on Stilts, Nzulezo, Takoradi
The Nzulezo Village is west of Takoradi about 90km away and is the home to around 500 inhabitants. The place is called the Venice of Ghana. Over the years the village has become popular with tourist just wanting to take a look. But be mindful this is an actual place people live. Getting there is by boat only
Ashanti Traditional buildings in Kumasi. The Asante Kingdom was one of the richest and most powerful states on the African continent. Today, one of the few vestiges of this once flourishing kingdom are ten traditional shrines believed to have been built in the nineteenth century. Scattered in villages to the north and northeast of Kumasi in central Ghana, these earthen buildings demonstrate some of the artistic achievements of the Asante culture.
Market Circle- Takoradi
From the air, this market is impressive as all roads in Takorodi lead to this massive circle which is just a crazy busy bizarre of shops and stalls. Once inside the Market circle, you have to be careful not to get lost, but whatever the outcome you know that you will end up on the other side carrying more things than you came in with.
